Monday night is “date night” at our house. I didn’t have a complete post ready in advance for Marriage Monday this week. I just spent the last 5 hours with my best friend (my husband) anyway, instead of trying to edit a blog post. Instead of curling up with Owen (volume 2 arrived today!!). Instead of cleaning, or pursuing the long to-do list swimming in my mind. And, you know what? We had a great evening. (And, lo and behold, I even have a little time before bed to tie up a few loose ends.)
I’m no better than anyone else, and I choose the wrong and selfish things far too often. Even when I choose to do the right thing, sometimes my mind is somewhere else. Sometimes it’s a real internal battle to switch gears and just be his wife for a while. But, oh, how those battles are worth fighting!
